Andrew Bynum plans to start running soon and is confident that he'll play for the Philadelphia 76ers this season after sitting out so far due to his ailing knees.

“It’s definitely moving in a positive direction,” said Bynum, who has been out with bone bruises and swelling cartilage.  “I’m feeling better every day.  I’m back to the weights and on the treadmill and I should be running here soon.”

Bynum believes his right knee is not an issue anymore while his left knee is much improved.

As for a potential setback, Bynum said: “It’s possible but right now the doctor has said that it will resolve itself. It’s going to be either 100 percent fine or your knee will swell up and give us signals that there is a problem. But as of right now my knee is fine and I think we are out of the woods with that.”
